In “Mood Swings” EP, Miguel Migs and Shades Of Gray have come together to deliver a fine Deep House affair drenched in rich textures, subtle undertones and moody melodies. Aspects of both classic and modern deep house intertwine expertly on these four tracks, creating edge and dynamism that is dance-floor ready.
The release starts off strong with “Create a Mood,” a truly deep groover of unparalleled freshness. With richly textured vocals, zippy synth stabs, lush layers, and tightly woven percussion, this track creates a mood of total allure and classic deep house appeal. “Down Underground” brings the late-night party vibes with a thick, sinister bass-line and a hypnotic vocal taking you deeper underground and telling you to dance ’til dawn.
“Let Me” is a feel-good moody jam with a thick, chunky bass-line, sparkling synths, hearty handclaps and an undeniable female voice that teases: “let me”. The “Salty Dub” channels more bounce with extra layers of throw back synth chords and a double-boost of boogie.
The Revenge has created a devilish duo of “Lose My Head” dub remixes to contrast against the funky original from the Brooklyn synth-pop quartet Body Language. Relentless builds, tight drum kicks, and a hypnotic 303 bass-line create a perfect Detroit house beast named Dub 1. His equally naughty brother Dub 2, will transfix you with throbbing chords and tight percussion, building up to an epic swell of dance-floor mania; beware of the insanity-causing drop!
“Were it to be examined by scientists, they’d probably conclude that it’s equal part velvet and lasers. We are not scientists, but we can tell you this: it hails from the Brooklyn quartet’s September 18 EP, Grammar, and if you can keep a grip on your noggin whilst listening, you’re doing it wrong.” -SPIN
“Brooklyn dance-pop act Body Language make music practically designed for remixes -PITCHFORK
“Sunny and buzzing!” –FADER
“What else would you expect from a group that’s been praised by everyone and their nanas?” -MTVIGGY
“Body Language are in the same ballpark, quality-wise, as, respectively, early Madonna, the disco label Prelude’s 1982 output, and CSS doing an impression of Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. That is some ballpark. It is possibly the greatest ballpark there is.” -THEGUARDIAN UK
“Body Language may traverse an impressive range of styles, but the group has only one clear motive: to move bodies on the dance floor.” –NPR
“Listen to ‘Lose my Head’ and see for yourself if the suede-lined synths and cosmic vocals aren’t seductive enough to have you pressing ‘play’ more than once.” –EARMILK
“Whatever you want to call it, this is undeniably sexy…The incredibly detailed production shows the band at their tightest and most polished.” –AFROPUNK
